I Can, I Will…

I can do all things through Christ
Philippians 4:13

In this technologically driven age of IPhones, IPods & IPads we’ve quickly become reliant on what these items are able to do for us. People seldom wear a watch, carry a diary or even open a book any more. Everything they need is provided by their technology. The difficulty is we’ve developed a society where people want everything done for them, rather than actually doing it themselves.

Today’s verse reminds us that we can, and should, be doing some things for ourselves. We shouldn’t be leaving everything to other people and our technology. The Bible says we’re individually equipped & capable of achieving some fairly major things. We’re able to achieve them with little help from others. But many believers ignore what they’re capable of producing. The truth is that when we work God’s Word in our lives, God’s Word works in our lives.

Here are a few simple things that we’re able to do individually. They require little help from technology or other people:

Ephesians 6:19 I CAN pray
Matthew 6:14-15 I CAN forgive
Matthew 2:8 I CAN worship God
Philippians 1:25 I CAN help others
1 Corinthians 13:2 I CAN move mountains
1 Corinthians 9:21 I CAN lead people to Christ
Psalm 139:7 I CAN never escape God’s presence!
Philippians 1:22 I CAN do more fruitful work for Christ
Mark 5:28, Matthew 9:21, 1 Peter 2:24 I CAN be healed.
Romans 1:11 I CAN use my spiritual gift to help others grow
2 Corinthians 8:3, Acts 26:22 I CAN tell people what God is doing in my life

This week lets decide, “I CAN & I WILL do more than I have been doing”. Let’s put away the distraction of technology and go “old school” in our pursuit of God. Let’s get up close & personal with Him rather than boxing God into our schedules & plans. Use the list above as a spontaneous bucket list for what you’d like to accomplish in God this week. Personally press your life into God’s Word & His Promises and you’ll quickly discover His Word & Promises overtaking your life.
